About the placement

You don’t watch from the sidelines around here — you get stuck in. Through hands-on experience and responsibility from the get-go, you’ll gain a vast insight into how our business works and contribute to it on day one. Inspiring, supportive colleagues will make you feel welcome and valued. We’ll also help you to develop your skillset and grow your potential through supported learning with on-the-job training, masterclasses, and an assigned buddy/mentor.

What you’ll need

You’ll be the engaging and energetic cornerstone of the collaborative relationship within People & Culture teams. You know your business and office software (e.g. Microsoft Office), have second-to-none communication skills, and understand the importance of customer experience. If you’re all about people, a great self-starter who loves to learn, and can plan and take ownership of your work, the People & Culture placement is your perfect opportunity.

What you’ll do

Our fabulous people are our biggest asset - they’re what makes us a great company, a great place to work, and why we’re growing globally. Whichever team you join, you’ll be part of that success.

And that’s why we’ll want you to experience the diverse nature of our teams and how they play their part in delivering this. You’ll get exposure to every aspect of our People and Culture functions. No two days will be the same - you could be working on anything from recruitment to leadership, employee relations to reporting and compliance, training to research and analysis. And you’ll be right at the heart of our business, helping us create a world-class employee experience for everyone, including you.
